Metabolism models across lake gradients

There are several ways to estimate metabolism using dissolved oxygen (DO) data. The inverse
modeling approach (IMA) is one of the ways that have been used in many of the recent
papers and use minimization algorithms to estimate the parameters related to production
and respiration rates. However different equations can be used for each term of the diel DO model,depending on the variables that can influence production and respiration rates at
organism and cell levels. Besides the variety of models describing metabolism we also have different lakes with singular environmental conditions. Therefore, our hypothesis is that different models will be more suitable to different types of lakes. And the goal is to test several equations to estimate GPP, R and atmospheric flux in a number of lakes covering different gradients, e.g. latitudinal, trophic status and water clarity. For GLEON 16 we aim to gather potential lakes and collaborators, and establish a timeline for the project.
